Good point for the Gills and everyone around us seemed to be involved in ties. As of this minute I guess I should be happy if we came away from Hull with a point ,but I am going to be greedy and say lets get three.

I was chopping an onion in the kitchen at 2.55,came back in at 3.05 to see we were 2-0 up! I couldn’t believe it,but that was as good as it got as Doncaster came back to make it 2-2.It looks like we could have gone 3-0 up before they pulled one back,but if you offered me a point before the game I would have taken it.
